Recently I came across a downloadable green sea turtle model. The rest was inevitable really...



You will notice that the back of a turtle is not a naturally tenable position for an elephant. A couple seem to be hanging on by their toenails.

The base evolves. And the Turtle Moves.

Nice.

What size is it?

Is it all 3D printed?

It is what I'm choosing to call a collage as I actually made very little of it. The turtle is a paper cut, fold and glue model from a free site online. The elephants were the only bought part from a semi high end toy shop. The disc is foam core with a map I traced from an on line source. The base is bits and bobs from my scrap collection.
It is in fact a tissue of mendacity from first to last. But I've always wanted a discworld.

Thanks for the info.  Turtle is impressive for a paper cut out.

I have a carved wooden turtle - never thought to make a Discworld model with it!

The elephant's trunks could be used to help stabilise the Discworld, too!

Indeed, the fact that the turtle is papercraft is really impressive! Did the pattern come pre-patterned or did you need to paint it yourself? Either way, it's a lovely result.

Yours,
Miranda.

He is from Canon's site Creative Park

He comes colored but rather too green. I knocked it down with a thin oil wash of umber.

Incredible work. As an avid Pratchett fan, I'm both impressed and extremely jealous
